Makes 12 pancakes (serving is 2 pancakes)


3 eggs

125ml buttermilk

50g butter, melted

Few drops vanilla extract

160g plain flour

1tbsp golden caster sugar

¾tsp baking powder

1 small punnet blueberries

1% Greek yogurt and runny honey


To make

Beat the eggs and a pinch of salt until frothy. Add the buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla and beat well. Sieve the flour with the sugar and the baking powder then sieve again a couple of times more to add lots of air.

Add the dry mixture to the liquid and quickly beat just enough to make a smooth batter, but not too long or the pancakes will be heavy. Put the mixture into a jug for easy pouring.

Brush a heavy-based frying pan with some oil. With heat on medium, pour in a couple of spoonfuls to make each pancake and sprinkle a few blueberries over the top of each one.

Cook gently until the top is bubbled like a crumpet, but golden brown around the edges. Flip and cook for a further minute or so.

Have one serving (2 pancakes) drizzled with a heaped tablepoon of 0% Greek yogurt and a teaspoon of honey
